Wacky Wednesday Zipper Plié

Wacky Wednesday Zipper Plié

I’ve used zippers as an image before. Here is a new one:

When coming up from a plié, picture a giant, upside-down zipper. At the bottom of the plié, the zipper is open. Now, as you come up, imagine gradually connecting each individual tooth of the zipper – beginning from the top of your thighs to your ankles.

This image assures a smooth movement and prevents popping pliés on the way up. One must never pop during pliés. Never.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets
Secret #2hhh:
“Come up from a plié like a zipper closing.”
